More than you can take.

I Corinthians 10:13 is one of those verses that I have highlighted and underlined in my Bible, written on a post-it note, and displayed so I can see it often!
 
"No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted,he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it."
 
 " No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face. All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he’ll never let you be pushed past your limit; he’ll always be there to help you come through it." - The Message
 
God promises us that He will never give us more than we can handle.  We are burdended with chores and kids and to-do's.  We are busy with our jobs and all that goes along with that.  We are thrown a million different "problems" and told to go in a million different directions and oh yeah be sure to take care of everyone else while you do it.  When we feel like we just can't take it anymore, we have to remember these two facts: GOD IS FAITHFUL and HE WILL ALSO PROVIDE A WAY OUT.   I honestly believe that sometimes God pushes us so that we have to trust in Him and turn to Him to help.  He wants to help you.  He wants to ease your burdens.  When these things pile up, do we turn to God or look somewhere else for an easy solution?  And we are not alone. He points out that everyone has troubles to. So all those women that seem like they have it all together and have no tests in their life, don't be fooled, they to need help sometimes!  Trust in God's faithfulness and ask him for guidance and he will provide a way out! I have to remind myself of this oh so often!
